Favorite Foods: The 20 Best And Worst Things You'd Eat For The Rest Of Your Life (PHOTOS)

It's time to hunt down the readers who chose "oatmeal" and give them a stern talking to.

At some point in your life, someone has probably asked you one of those dumb end-all, be-all questions: "If you had to choose, which animal would you be?" We hate those questions, but regardless, we're asking you one of them right now.

We took to Facebook to ask our followers this question: What one dish would you eat every day for the rest of your life? Practicality is not a factor, nor is health. Our readers answered, and below we've ranked their choices, from the brilliant to the ridiculous. We realize this is not life's most important query, but we do enjoy gaining some insight to your brains. (Editor's note: We cannot express enough disappointment that no one mentioned NACHOS. Come on, guys.)

And the ranking, from your best answers to your worst:

1. Macaroni and Cheese (BEST ANSWER)
This is an example of a solid, solid answer. Just watch our readers' integrity start to slide as you work your way down this list.

They have bacon AND they (probably) won't kill you.

This is in the dead middle because we can't decide whether this is the best answer or the worst answer in the world.
